1) Preparation and Prayer
Read the following Psalm as a prayer in preparing your heart for meeting with God.
Psalm 17:6–9 (ESV)
17:6 I call upon You, for You will answer me, O God; incline your ear to me; hear my words.
17:7 Wondrously show your steadfast love, O Savior of those who seek refuge from their adversaries at your right hand.
17:8 Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings,
17:9 from the wicked who do me violence, my deadly enemies who surround me.
- BIRTHDAY AND ANNIVERSARIES.
- 2nd May : Kelly-Mari Boswell
- 2nd May : Magriet Dearman
- IN NEED. If you experience any need at the moment, whether it is financial or for essential goods please let Carel-J know. I’m also available for Whatsapp video chats, if you are struggling emotionally/spiritually. Let me know!
- Bible studies. The Wednesday morning Bible study has started with online meetings. The teenagers also meet online twice a week. If you’re not part of a Bible study we really want to encourage you to join one now. Online meeting is still far more beneficial than not meeting at all.
- Church camp POSTPONED. We will reschedule once the COVID-19 pandemic is over
- King’s Kids Week CANCELLED. It’s with great sadness that we have to cancel King’s Kids Week for this year. This is the time we need to get the team together to start training and preparation, which is not possible. It would also not be wise to bring a great crowd of children (many from other towns) together in 2 months time, considering what we’re learning from other countries on how long social distancing must be in place (There is also talk that the June/July holidays will be cancelled)
If God leads you to support our ministry, you can either EFT the money into our account (details below) or if you do not have access to EFT, please contact Bruce Waldek to assist you. (Bruce Waldek 076 595 9325)
